Contrary to previous studies, diabetes affects diaphragm, smooth muscle cells differently

Previous studies have shown that diabetes adversely affects breathing and respiratory function. However, in the past, researchers have not differentiated diaphragm muscle cells and the muscle cells of limb skeletal muscle in their studies. Now, researchers have found that diaphragm muscle cells and other skeletal muscle cells behave differently — a finding that could influence future research on respiratory ailments associated with diabetes.
